1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, now.

It is important a physician exam his eye.
Eye injuries can be serious, and if a surgical intervention is required, the sooner the better. Also, prophylactic antibiotic drops may be prescribed to prevent an infection.

In brief: Yes

Dear grc123 i strongly recommend that he see an ophthalmologist to make certain there is no damage to the inside of the eye.
There is also potential for infection and preventive measures that need to be taken.

In brief: Yes.

The cut needs to be evaluated by an opthomologist.
Is it infected? Is it an open globe injury? These issues require immediate attention.
